Flying's Great Problem
Is Successfully Solved
Radio Beam Will Insure
Safety in Bad Weather.
Chicago. ? The dream of radio and
aeronautical engineers that the day
would come when it would be prac
tical to land giant airliners filled
with passengers down an invisible
radio beam which would penetrate
fog, snow, rain, or other bad weath
er has at last been realized. Radio
communications engineers of the
country's four largest airlines, at a
meeting here, agreed that the sci
ences of radio and flying have ad
vanced to the place where so-called
blind landings now are practical.
They WTOte a specification for a
standard instrument landing sys
tem which ultimately will be in
stalled in key airports throughout
the United States.
The engineers have had an instru
ment landing system such as they
described in their specifications in
actual operation for more than two
years at Oakland, Calif. More than
2,000 landings by thirty or more
pilots have proved it is sound.

This is how it works: A pilot fly

special equipment for the instru

receiving sets in his ship to the ultra,
high frequencies of the "direction

Then he lets down through the
clouds until his altimeter shows his
altitude is 2,000 feet. Once there he
aligns himself on the directional
landing beam and flies along level
until he passes through an outer
marker beacon ? a vertical radio

Once in the proper position, the
airman engages his automatic pilot
(operated by gyroscopes) and then
lets go the controls so that the sen

ly sits back watching the needles
-and making slight adjustments of
the automatic pilot as need arises.

plane is descending at a speed of
approximately 90 miles an hour.
Wien the ship arrives almost at the
field it passes through a zone of sig

The pilot simply sits back in his
seat and lets the airplane follow the
glide beam which flattens out over
the field until the wheels touch the
runway. Then he closes the throt
tles and applies his brakes.

GOD REQUIRES SOCIAL

likewise. Luke 6:31.

?My Resonsiblllty for Social Justice.
Labor Day ? in this year of our
Lord 1937 ? looks out upon a world
deeply divided in opinions of what
is right and what is wrong in the
relationship between capital and la
bor. Political and economic leaders
are talking much of social justice,
of a planned economy in which all
shall have a full share of the prod
ucts of labor. Surely, we would all
agree that there should be only
kindness and justice in all such
dealings of man with man. But how
to accomplish that result in a world
of selfishness and sin, that indeed
is the question.
Unfortunately, many of those in
the church who have greatly
stressed social relationships have
forgotten that the true foundation
for such teaching and living is thq,
preaching of the gospel of re
demption. In reaction to their im
possible position, others who have
faithfully preached the necessity of
regeneration have forgotten to
stress the need of the expression of
regenerated life in the social rela
tionships of man. We need God
given balance, with a proper re
flection of gospel truth in honest and
helpful living. God wants his peo
ple to show that they belong to him
i. xruviuuig lur uic four auu
Needy (vv. 9, 10, 14, 15).
When Jesus said, "Ye have the
poor always with you" (Matt.
26:11), he referred to one of the
responsibilities which thoughtful and
considerate men have always glad
_ ly borna, but which has been a con
stant problem to bote individuals
and nations. We have dealt with it
in our day on a broad and supposed
ly scientific basis, but those who
are closest to it are quick to admit
that we have even now an imperfect
solution. In the days of Israel the
poor were fed by the purposeful
leaving of gleanings in the field ?
which the needy were free to gather
as their own. Thus they had the joy
of helping themselves even as they
were being helped by others, and,
in the final analysis, by God him
II. Guarding Another's Reputation
Gossip is a destructive means of
breaking down the good standing
of another. It is a sin all too com
mon in our day, even within the
circle of God's own people. Tale
bearing and evil-speaking are a
blight on our social and religious
life. We should put them away.
Akin to this common and awful
sin is the bearing of grudges and
the seeking for revenge, neither of
which serves any good purpose.
in. Honoring the Aged (v. 32).
Old - age pensions undoubtedly
have their place in ouf complicated
social life, but it is evident that
they would be entirely unnecessary
if men and women had in the fear
of God honored "the hoary head"
and "the face of the old man," even
as God gave command to Israel.
IV. Loving the Stranger (vv. 33,
The man who knows what it is
to have been a stranger, and to
meet with love and protecting care,
should never forget to go and do
likewise. Living, as many of us
do, in great cities makes this some
what of a problem, and yet one
sometimes wonders whether the j
bustling city is not often kinder to j
the stranger than the little com
munity, which makes him feel
like an "outsider."
V. Being Honest in Business (w.
11-13, 35, 36).
No stealing, no false swearing, no
defrauding, no withholding of wages,
for all these things dishonor or "pro
fane the name of thy God."
A good motto to hang up behind
the counter or over the desk in a
business house is found in the words
of verses 35 and 36. False bottoms,
trick scales, short measure ? oh,
yes, they are against the city ordi
nance, and you will be fined if you
are caught. But remember, they
are also an abomination in the sight
of the Lord.
The closing verse of our lesson
reiterates that important truth. In
carrying out the tenets of social
justice we are not simply being
humane and kind. We are observ
ing the statutes and ordinances of
the Eternal One, him who says, "I
